Band: GOLDEN HOURS
Who: Based between Berlin and Brussels, the project is comprised of past and
present members of Gang Of Four, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Tricky, The Fuzztones
and The Third Sound, to name just a few. A band with mileage and stories, Golden Hours trade in rock’n’roll missives that are at times dark, tense, and hypnotic, at others sweaty, relentless and danceable.
Last March the group launched their admirable self-titled debut full-length. A top-notch, varied mix of Krautrock, electrifying Pop/Rock jams, shoegaze and balladry. You can stream it below.
One of the peak moments on the record JAPAN ON MY MIND came out as a single,
annex video, a couple of weeks ago. A shadowy, graceful, and mesmeric ballad for the midnight hours. It wouldn’t be out of place on an album of romantics, The National.
The soft, warm vocals immediately brought their crooner/songwriter Matt Berninger
to mind, and with the song’s mellow and soothing orchestration, I heard echoes of day/night dreamers Tindersticks. Japan On My Mind is a fitting musing for the midnight hours.
Dim the light, relax, take a seat, and let your thoughts take over.
